Important and positive changes are happening at the Society! The number of people purchasing books in person from the Society bookroom has declined rapidly in recent years. Most people purchase our books online from our website. Even Auckland folk struggle to negotiate the traffic and prefer to order online. Most weeks no one comes to the Society bookroom except the volunteer on duty. As many of you know it is increasingly hard to get people to volunteer their time and energy to do this.
We are extremely lucky to announce that Naturo Pharm have kindly offered to store our bookshop books in their new Rotorua premises. Naturo Pharm is one of our oldest homeopathic pharmacies in New Zealand and we are very grateful for their collaboration and support. You will order online as normal from the Society website but the books will now be dispatched from Rotorua by Naturo Pharm. This means a quicker turnaround in posting books. Rather than having to wait for the Wednesday volunteers to pack them and post them, orders can be processed faster. To you the customer, there will be no difference at all when you place and pay for your order. For us volunteers as the Society, it really reduces our weekly workload and streamlines the whole process. Naturo Pharm posts out many remedy orders daily, so it is easy for them to accommodate us and our books!
To reiterate, books can only be purchased online from the website not from the Society rooms.
The Society will continue to purchase and stock a good range of books, the old favourites, the ones students need for college and of course the lovely new books that we all love to look forward to.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for supporting the bookshop over the years and we look forward to continuing to provide you with an excellent service in the future.
